Unexpected Xmas Present

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hello, 

 

So I have come into some extra money over xmas and I am wanting to upgrade my graphics card. At the moment I have a 1050ti paired with a Ryzen 5 2600. My PSU is 550W. I have a budget of £300 (sorry don't know what that is in $). So if i needed a new PSU that would be need to be included in the budget. All i will be doing is playing FFXIV @ 1080p, which my current card does brilliantly, but i want to venture into Total War: Warhammer 2. I also would like to be future proofed. Don't really play AAA titles, i get round to them a few years after they came out. 

 

Any suggestions?

what model is your psu? 

if you don't need to change it, I'd go for a rx5700, if you need to change it, I'd go for a 1660 super with a corsair txm gold 550W.
